Hello and Welcome to CarlsbadBeachCondo.com
1. Wi-Fi Enabled
a. Beach sand is the killer of everything. Equipment, fun and comfort. Please try to keep the sand outside.
b. We have a basket at the garage door into the house and the garage door to slip your shoes into. This helps a lot with the reduction of sand into your vacation home.
c. We have a hose at the corner of the garage, a good rinse of the feet, boogie boards and ice chests, helps a lot. Wash all the sand off before coming inside.
d. We have a row of hooks inside the garage for used beach towels. Also a hamper for used beach towels. Please don’t throw these in the washing machine. We prefer that you leave them for us in the hamper.
e. Please! For any sandy clothing, towels or shoes, shake them, rinse with hose and get them free of sand before bringing them into the house.
f. We have a battery powered portable vacuum. This is great for quick clean ups of sand that might get tracked in. The sooner you clean it up, the less distributed it becomes. It is always nice to avoid distributing the sand into your sheets!
3. SHADES AND BLINDS
- Most of the blinds are simply operated up and down by hand. Many of these have a diffuser, a darkener, and open position.
- The blinds with the long wand attached, work like these photos.
- There are two large dumpsters as well as recycling bins. These are in the containment to the north of shed in the center of the parking lot.
- Each trash can in the kitchen has extra liners in the bottom of the can, and if you need more, they are in the kitchen cabinets.
5. Filtered Water
- If you open the refrigerator, there is a water bottle/glass filling station inside.
- We have a pile of beach goodies, a sand wagon, a few boogie boards, some sand toys, beach chairs and an umbrella. This inventory can change at any moment because of guest use. These are things that get lost occasionally, and most of the time guests will replace something that they lose or break. If we notice something is missing or worn out we will replace it. In general you should expect these things and a lot of beach towels to be available to you.
- Also, the wicker table in bedroom 4 shown in the photo from section 6 is full of board games, cards and other entertainment. Again the stock comes and goes a bit as guests use them, but feel free to put these to use.
7. WET CLOTHING
- This would seem to fall into the category of common sense, you might agree that common sense, is actually not very common at all.
- When you have wet swimsuits, wetsuits, blankets, towels, etc., please change clothes and only sit on the chairs, barstools, and benches with dry clothing.
- All 3 of the TV’s in the home are Samsung, and as such there are no cable boxes or anything but the TV to interact with.
- Guests often re-arrange the icons and move things around so we can’t tell you exactly what the screen will look like but this should get you started.
- Installed are several apps that are logged in and ready to use.
- In general we use Spectrum for all the cable channels, sports, and news broadcast. We subscribe to their big content package so you should be able to find A LOT to watch.
- NETFLIX, AMAZON, internet, YouTube are all installed and available to you.
- Look for the content bar, or look under apps.
- There are many apps and guest sign in and out. The ones above I have subscriptions that are active in the home.
- In general the remotes do not swap well. The white one goes downstairs, the black one is upstairs. You should find them in the proper room at check in.
9. The bed in the master is a sleep number mattress. Most people like something around the 50’s to start with.
- Use the remote and choose left or right, then arrow up or down to set the firmness. HERE IS THE TRICK, press enter to accept the new number.
10. Garage Remotes
- We have two programmed remotes for the garage hanging on the key rack.
- These constantly get driven home by mistake.
- Try to remember to leave them at the house at check out, or send them back to
